Earlier this month, I was hired by Desiree Chocolates for a Beach Party themed Bat Mitzvah. It was so much fun to build this party in the dead of winter. Believe it or not, I am writing this as a big snowstorm is at our heels here near Chicago. The good thing is each day that passes, we are one day closer to flip flops, sandcastles and beach bags.
I made several pieces for this party. Lets start with the menu cards. I knew this needed to be a mix of whimsy and elegance. The images are Doodlebats. I was able to cut them, similar to cutting stencils and attached them to the themed, colored tent cards. I LOVE the way they came out and will definitely, do something similar again for another party. Adding a little "bling" really makes them pop on the dessert table.
The signage is something I always do for Desiree. I like to cut the logo and add something personal to her dessert tables. This way, the kids can keep the piece as a souvenir. This particular sign was a very intricately cut, very delicate; so I added it to a paper sculpted frame to set it out from everything else on the table. I heard it was a big hit!
What's a beach without flip flops? When I saw this pattern I knew I just had to make it for this party, it was PERFECT! I used Rachel's chosen colors; bright orange, bright blue and fushia. I did cut down the sole of this box. In my opinion the sole needed to be a little thinner. Adding a little flower to the strap gave a little more dimension and her name gave it that personal touch that I love in all my parties.
Aren't these the cutest mini cupcake picks? I used the same Doodlebats and printed them in the theme colors. Sometimes, I make these in a little bigger size, but these were mini picks. I added the "bling" to them too.
Lastly, I made a sandcastle to tie everything together. This was really just a prop. I thought it was so cute and perfect for the theme.
Watch for a collage of this party coming soon.
Thanks for stopping by!
